    I'm jealous! He's one of the musicians that I MUST see before I die (I've got a long time). I really like trumpet players that can pull out so many different instruments and just go nuts...

    Glad you had a good time!

    Matt, it also inspires me that the tiny population of Oz still can produce talent equal to the best elsewhere in the world - James Morrison is a protege of Don Burrows another amazing talent.

    I bought James Morrison's book, 'Blowing my own horn', while I was at the concert (nothing like getting swept up in the hype!). I am just finishing another book so have only flipped through James' book but saw the name Don Burrows repeatedly. He also dedicates the book to Don calling him his "old friend and mentor". James also says that Don once told him that you're only as good as the company you keep, to which James says that in Don's company, he is at his best.
    It oozes respect and I can't wait to read it.
